Abstract
Current technology advancement promotes borderless environment among individuals, organisations, global industries or public per se. It is akin to having a home but a physical house that is not visible. Looking at the present cybercrime trends, it cannot be disputed that information security is a key matter to observe in the rapid advancement of technology. Information security can be achieved through not only technological and procedural aspects but also the people aspect of information security. An examination of individual’s self awareness of information security based on identified key computing areas is carried out through this study. This study aims to provide evidence to organisation(s) in identifying individuals who can be effective defenders to man critical systems and be change agents / ambassadors to cultivate a more security aware community.
